Strawberries are fascinating fruits because they are technically not actual berries and are members of the rose family. That's right; strawberries are a member of the rose family due to their sweet fragrance, similar to the lovely fragrance that roses give off. In terms of berries, true berries hold their seeds on the interior of their being. Strawberries are the opposite, proudly displaying their green-yellow seeds on the outside. Some botanists consider that each seed on a strawberry is its own separate fruit, talk about receiving a lot in a small package!
Berries, berries, and more berries! With Honeoye, you’ll have the perfect berries for all of your cooking endeavors, from fresh to freezing, even jams and elegant wine. Honeoye is a dependable grower, a consistent berry producer that you will not need to worry about lacking in berries.

How to Grow
Strawberries thrive best in soil rich in organic material, fertile, and well-draining but average in moisture. Keeping the soil moist is key to ensuring that the berry harvest is plentiful and full of plump berries. Don't hide them from the sun; strawberries enjoy uninterrupted sun on their faces. Honeoye is self-pollinating, allowing you to plant as little or as many as you would desire.
